2019: Grant Recipients

We continue to work towards the public good. We are focused on developing individuals who help their communities grow and flourish.

The Community-University Partnership (CUP) Grants program is designed to support the development of our regions through contributions to cultural, economic, sporting and related activities and build higher education aspiration and awareness particularly among young people in rural and regional communities

In 2019, the program awarded about $120,000 to community groups across the University footprint.

Grants were available in six categories: arts and culture, education, Indigenous development, health and wellbeing, environmental sustainability, and sport.
